My diet, for most of my life, has strictly been vegetarian. I was raised vegetarian and am currently still vegetarian. While I believe it works well for me, in the past I didn’t have a very balanced and healthy diet. When I was younger, I used to eat a lot of carbohydrates and fats. I have three younger brothers, and I was accustomed to eating the same amounts of food as they did, even though I am a girl and don’t require as much calories as they do.
